Erin McDonough #2, VT

I grew up in North Adams, Massachusetts where I received formal training at Berkshire Dance Theater and Canterella School of Dance. During these early years, I completed the Cechetti Ballet Exams and attended NADAA (National Alliance of Dance and the Affiliated Arts). Eventually, I attended Plymouth State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Education and Dance Pedagogy. I have had the opportunity to perform under the direction of Prometheus Dance Company (Boston), Amy Marshall Dance Company (NYC), and Pamela Pietro (NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts). After graduating, I danced for IMPACT Dance Company (Boston), and Tributary Dance Company (New England). With a big move to Texas, I taught dance, directed and choreographed competition pieces, and performed with Austin Allegro Dance Company and The Dance Project (Austin). I am very excited to continue onto my next chapter of dancing here in Vermont by starting my own contemporary dance company, Elevation Contemporary.
